Great service

Couldn’t be happier with the product and services

Automatic Drinker 5L

Good quality and good price. My chickens, ducks and ducklings are loving it. The ducks make it a muddy mess in 1 day but it is really simple to tip out, give a quick scrub, and let it refill itself.

Summer hens

Great little trough, just connect and ready to go. Happy little hens in this summer sun always having a good clean supply of water.

Fabulous Service!

We ordered our automatic drinker online and it arrived within 72hrs - amazing as it came from the South Island to our remote Coromandel home! The drinker is excellent, was easily installed and is working well. Highly recommended!

Easy buying and quick delivery.

Easy to use website and you know what you’re getting.

Postage is quite expensive, would be happy to wait a few more days to get a reduced price, almost put me off buying, but can’t beat convenience.

The five litre drinker is good but I had to do some work with my own tools to get the bowl to sit flush against the back wall of the surround, the cutout didn’t line up with the bolt. Also if the hose fitting provided had some plumbers tape on it to stop leaks it would help.

I contacted Appleton’s and they explained it was a manufacturing error and rectified the situation.

If there are any issues they seem to be happy to help sort them out.
